When you want to feel better about the life you have, setting intentions and being grateful for the good in your life is a powerful start. And tapping while you do that can intensify the good feelings.
You don’t have to be religious for this to work. You can change the word “God” to “Universe”, “Source”, “Divine”, or use no word at all.
My friend Karen and I did this every morning for a long time. If you have a tapping buddy or if you do it alone, it’s a wonderful way to start or end the day. Feel free to change the words to fit your situation!
(For positive tapping, you can skip the setup statement, though you are welcome to use one if you like).
Tap through the points, and see if you can connect to the feelings in your body:
Top of the Head: “Good Morning, God.”
Eyebrow: “Thank you for loving me all through the night.”
Side of the Eye: “Thank you for waking me this morning and letting me feel your presence.”
Under the Eye: “Would you show me in little ways, all through the day, how much you love me?”
Under the Nose: “Please help me to be open to joy and gratitude today.”
Chin: “Thank you for this body, God.”
Collarbone: “I am so grateful for its health and strength.”
Under the Arm: “My right leg <or whatever body part> is trying to tell me something.”
Top of the Head: “But I’m having trouble understanding.”
Eyebrow: “Could you give me insights into what would be most helpful for it?”
Side of the Eye: “I know you gave my body great intelligence.”
Under the Eye: “Please help me trust that and be open to it.”
Under the Nose: “Please help me to see the wonder in today.”
Chin: “I’d like to feel safe and playful today.”
Collarbone: “Thank you, God, for this wonderful world.”
Under the Arm: “Thank you, God, for this wonderful life.”
Top of the Head: “Good morning, God.”
